Beginning Reader Review of Little Critter To the Rescue by Mercer Mayer

Read For: Early Reader Challenge
Synopsis: "Uh-oh, Dad needs help!

When Dad is locked in the basement, Little Critter knows just what to do. He picks up the phone to dial three numbers. The firemen arrive in just a few minutes to rescue Dad . . . but they can't stay long to share in the excitement. They have another job to do. Join Little Critter as he shares his 9-1-1 smarts!"

My Review: This is a cute book and has a great lesson to it. It is a fun way to teach kids the importance and ease of dialing 911 when they need help. It is a simple story and with simple lines though maybe a little more advanced that a first level. I think this will be a great story for Munchkin when he is ready to read, with familiar characters and fun illustrations to go along with the story.
My Rating: This is a fun book yet a great teaching tool, both for reading and for practical life.  I give it a rating of Four Paws!
